I'm a Web programmer who got tired of spending only a few weeks a year away from home exploring what the world has to offer. I decided to leave everything and hit the road on a permanent mission to view the world.
I decided to create "Freedom 45" to paraphrase a quote from a famous insurance company promising retirement at 55 (theirs is "Freedom 55"). I decided 45 was old enough to know what I want to do (well, I was 43 when I took the decision).
I've spent the last 18 months or so planning for this major life change and embrace the permanent travelling lifestyle.
I'm an early bird. I get up very early and I like the morning's light for photography. But I can also keep busy on my own in silence for a long time with my laptop planning and sorting photos or visits.
I'm big and tall, non-smoker, very light social drinker.
